says president obama. >> the difference between this year and 2011 is the fact that we have made $1.2 trillion in cuts. at the time i indicated that there were cuts that we can sensibly make that would not damage our economy. would not impede growth. >> in a statement, john boehner stood by the efforts to use the debt ceiling as leverage. the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing spending at the same time, he said. the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real and so too are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. >> if you think about the first four years. >> hoary addressed concern that is the new cabinet lacks diversity. of the 16 cabinet positions, only two are women. recent appointments to posts have been white men. the president promised the diversity of his second term cabinet will meet that of his first. >> i would suggest that everybody wait until they have seen all my appointments. who is in the white house staff and who is in my cabinet before they rush to judgment. >> the president respond

double in the coming year. joining us now is the author of decoding the obama health law. she's the former lt. governor of new york, betsy mccoy, who was in my memory, the very first person to start talking about the president's plan for health care. this is back in '09, nobody was talking about it yet and you were sounding this alarm and taking a lot of incoming. >> and here is the law. >> megyn: and she's the one who's read it. >> that's right. >> megyn: look at that, look at the dog eared papers and-- >> here is the new book that describes it in simple terms, beating obamacare. >> megyn: that looks much more digestible. you did not want to see this passed and now it's passed and now you feel that people need a guide to navigate around it the pitfalls, specifically, let's start with premiums. that's what's in the news, that premiums are up and going up higher. >> and there's a simple reason, there is no tooth fairy, and the new federal rule, some of which have already rolled out, are compelling all insurance companies to offer preventive care without a co-pay or deductible.

years, here's president obama with his arm against a republican, and someone will use that against a certain member of congress. so i don't think we can blame the president for his style. it's just another part of this terrible political gridlock we have. president obama is a warm and engaging man. he doesn't have the charm of a john f. kennedy or ronald reagan, but he's plenty friendly to everybody he meets, including reporters. >> he is, indeed. doug, thanks. i want to play some of the highlights from the presidential press conference. this is really what drove the conversation. it is all about the need for the government to pay our bills. >> to even entertain the idea of this happening, of the united states of america not paying its bills, is irresponsible. it's absurd. as the speaker said two years ago, and i'm quoting speaker boehner now, a financial disaster not only for us, but for the worldwide economy. so we've got to pay our bills. and republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly and put ame
